What Services Do Wheel and Tyre Retailers Offer?

Wheel and tyre retailers are all over the country and you will make use of them at some point in your driving career. These days it seems that wheel and tyre retailers offer many services related to your vehicle. Therefore it is a good idea to have it all done at once and in one place so that you are able to save time and costs. When that time comes, what can you have fixed or checked at the same time when you visit a wheel and tyre retailer?

You can purchase a set of tyres and alloy wheels as they should have a wide variety of brands available. You could choose any of the top tyre brands including Toyo, Nexen, Continental, Goodyear, Michelin, Pirelli, Dunlop and much more. Alloy wheels are available in various sizes including 13, 15, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 22 inches.

They can perform wheel balancing. Wheels that are out of balance generally produce a vibration that makes it uncomfortable to drive. It results in premature wearing of the suspension and steering components. Correctly balanced wheels help to eliminate vibration and avoid premature wear caused by an imbalance in the rotating wheel and tyre assembly. If your steering wheel starts to wobble above a certain speed, then this is an indication that it needs balancing.

They can correct your wheel alignment. Incorrect wheel alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can affect the handling and safety your vehicle. The alignment can be affected by driving against a curb or hitting a pothole in the road.

They can repair punctures. Some punctures can be repaired safely and affordably. The best thing that you can do to improve the chances of your puncture being repairable is not to drive on it when it is flat. The purpose of a puncture repair is to seal the tyre’s casing which prevents moisture or contaminants from entering the tyre’s structure.

They can assist you with the tyre rotation. Rotating your tyres occasionally is a necessary part of tyre maintenance. The main purpose of regularly rotating tyres is to achieve a more uniform wear for all tyres on the vehicle. If irregular or uneven wear develops then you need to rotate your tyres. A hard impact such as hitting a pothole can cause misalignment, which then causes uneven tyre wear.

If you have any problems with your wheels and tyres then you can have multiple functions performed at one time to ensure that it remains in good driving condition.
